Based on the presented statistics and taking on the role of a betting expert with 20 years of experience, we present to your attention the analysis:
Manchester City are undoubtedly in good form with 6 wins from 8 matches. The defense is especially strong, conceding only 6 goals. Attacking performance, shots, possession and expected goals against teams such as RB Leipzig and Nottingham Forest show the team's dominant performance. A notable advantage is the statistics of corners: in many matches they dominated in this aspect, which indicates constant pressure on the opponent.
Brighton, despite impressive performances, especially in attack, scoring 21 goals in 8 matches, have a weak defense, conceding 16 goals. Their European matches show they can hold their own against quality opponents (eg the draw with Marseille), but their defensive lapses could be their undoing against top quality teams like Manchester City. Judging by previous meetings, the advantage was on the side of Manchester City, and Brighton only managed to draw them once. Their matches are usually accompanied by a large number of goals, which is also confirmed by the statistics of more than 2.5 goals for both teams
Manchester City have been in great form recently, winning 6 of their last 8 matches. In most matches they dominated their opponents in terms of possession, shots on goal and overall control of the match. Manchester City are showing amazing form at home, and given that the team is playing Brighton, whom they have thoroughly beaten in recent matches, a City win seems the most likely result. Although Brighton are playing well, City should have enough experience and class to win.
Manchester City are expected to win, but Brighton have shown their ability to play ahead in recent matches. With Brighton averaging 21 goals per 8 matches, it's likely they could score against City. However, given City's defensive qualities and their dominance in recent matches, it is likely that they will score more and eventually win. This combination of events makes the bet riskier, but also offers much more attractive odds.
